Gowanus Whole Foods announces plans for rooftop greenhouse
The Whole Foods planned for Gowanus will have a greenhouse on top of the store.
The company announced today that Gotham Greens will run the greenhouse, which they say will be the nation’s first commercial-scale greenhouse farm within a grocery store.
Gotham Greens already operates a rooftop greenhouse in Greenpoint.
The greenhouse will be 20,000 square feet and constructed on top of the 52,000-square-foot store.
The store is scheduled to open later this fall.
